Only iPhone 6 with 4.8 Inch Display Can Save Apple’s Smartphone Domination
Apple iPhone 5 has somehow survived the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, GS3 and SPEN onslaught, but in 2013 the constraints are very tight for four inch iOS powered smartphone. According to a report published by Peter Misek, who has forecasted an Apple HDTV for quite a while, today presented his roadmap for forthcoming Apple devices. The analyst is predicting an “iTV” linked function the following month, the cheap iPhone and iPhone 5S unveiling in June or July, and second-generation iPad mini, and iTV in early September.
However, the big iPhone with 4.8 inch screen is not coming this year, and this is the biggest issue for fans desperate to have Note 2 like SPen and multi-window functionality. Based on the roadmap, the iPhone 6 with big display will arrive in June 2014 and not in October as previously expected.
The main issue that pushed the date to 2014 is difficulties manufacturing big screen with in-cell display technology, and the other problem is the company’s plan to move to a 20 nm processor. The introduction of the new cpu will allow manufacturer to add more cores, maybe four or eight. On the software side, engineers will have to upgrade the iOS architecture to reap the full benefit of the new processing speed.
The analyst initially reported back in November last year that Sharp is already working on the Apple iTV production lines, and today, Misek claimed next month’s Apple iTV event could launch an SDK for Apple’s new TV but not the television set itself.
